, and then certainly cost. this was an unfunded mandate. it was washington d.c. setting the rules and "sending the bills to the states." we have 13 states and 11 others pass resolutions saying it was a bad idea and they were not going to comply. what pass id does is to stop kicking the can down the road. let's solve the problem and create certainty. let's do what we can now. verification has increased under pass id because all states will conduct verification. it should be noted that 49 statesdo [unintelligible] that did not exist pre-9/11. the three systems that the governor talked about that are questionable that would not be required right away, the drivers database, the better records, and passport database will be difficult to implement. pass id is not say get rid of them but it says pilot them. this make the investment to see if we can make these things work. if we can make them work and get them funded and are cost- effective, governors and dmv's will use them. as one governor said to me, david, can you tell me today how many of those systems are voids the governor, how they're paid for

the marches. and then my mother went to the march on washington. i look for her in the crowd. i could feel the energy and i could hear the words of that profit, that brought by -- that prophet, that the rabbi. i saw pictures of the ku klux klan and they would say "i am going to get to commandeer -- i am going to get you, nigger." i would read about a man who had his brains knocked out. he was a unitarian minister. the three young men, a catholic lay woman -- i followed that and i would hear in dr. king and see him love your enemy, turn the other cheek. my god, he was living. heidi do that as a young man who is angry? -- how do you do that as a young man who is angry? you begin to understand more deeply this rabbi from nazareth and this man who is leading this nonviolent army. and then the ultimate, the devastation of it all, yet the great revelation and salvation of it all -- he is assassinated. the rabbi was nailed to a tree. his forerunner got his head cut off. then you say that there is no salvation without the shedding of blood. and i thought that the only thing about the non-violent m

that money has influenced the debate here in washington for too long. all you have to do is look at the housing crisis, investment crisis, the banking crisis, even this health care debate was already tainted by how much money had flooded into the system. corporations and unions already had the opportunity to put money into campaigns through political action committees. they already spent a ton of money. this decision today simply doubles, quadruples, the opportunity for more money to flow in. my guess is that what you're going to discover over the next several years is that the elected officials in the house and senate are going to end up serving special interests even more than they do today and not the public's interest. we need citizen-owned elections. we need average and ordinary citizens to participate. we need voluntary opportunities for people to contribute. our founding fathers never intended that money was going to be included in the free speech amendment. this decision was 5-4. we believe that what the supreme court has done is shown their political activism at a time w
, and you said there's too much spending and not about bipartisanship in washington. if that is not a referendum on the president, what do you think the message to them as? >> the message from travelling around the state, and i have tried to do some self rollup rigid self reflection as to why i am standing before you here today, the number one thing i have heard is that people are tired of business as usual. that means that the behind-the- scenes deals, the nebraska subsidizing of medicaid, things like that have just driven people crazy. they want to make sure that their elected officials are doing things in a transparent manner, with the best interest of our state in mind. the things that you just referred to come up we have health care here. we have certainly an economic problem, but the first time it was billed did not work. we have not created one new job. take the expiring tax cuts. when you talk about a child tax credit being cut in half, they affect every person from rich to poor, and there are financial issues in a time when people are having a difficult time
on hold? [applause] you see, washington has been telling us to wait for decades, even as the problems have grown worse. meanwhile, china is not waiting to revamp its economy. germany is not waiting. and yet is not waiting. these nations are not standing still. these nations aren't playing for second place. they are putting more emphasis on math and science. they are rebuilding their at the structure. they are making serious investment in clean energy because they want those jobs. well, i do not accept second place for the united states of america. [applause] [applause] as hard as it may be, as uncomfortable and contentious as the debates may become, it is time to get serious about fixing the problems that are hampering our growth. now, one place to start is serious financial reform. look, i am not interested in punishing banks. i am interested in protecting our economy. a strong, healthy, financial market makes it possible for businesses to access credit and create new jobs. ridge channels the savings of families into investments that race in comes, but that can only happen if we guard aga

memphis, his first trip to washington, as far as, you know, it's mind-boggling to think that elvis gets on a plane in in memphis, comes to washington, if i was walking through the airport, i'd probably be standing there, staring, waiting for elvis to do or say smog, as far as him arriving in washington and checking into the hotel, did he tell you anything, anything happening, taxi ride, do you have any details? >> there was a couple of details. one was, you know, what ementioned earlier about the flight coming back to meet me and the gun situation. but there was, to tell you what a great actor elvis was, there was a situation where on that first trip, as the car was taking him to the hotel he stopped at a doughnut shop. elvis, he didn't care where things were. it wasn't in a really good neighborhood, and was predominantly a pretty rough place, as i found out later, he was telling me, stop at this doughnut shp, he had the jewelry on, the rings and everything, so he's kind of -- these kind of superfly guys were going, hey, man, that's some really nice jewelry. elvis goes to his boot and p

on a washington-based or national management structure, and then finally emphasize the customer experience. again, this is where policy its reality. this is where the backlash will be very real and tangible for that god awful big monster created in washington and it doesn't actually get me insurance when i go on line. secondly, there's a whole issue about regulation versus retailing. clearly, the national -- the house vision is one for an exchange to be more of a regulator than the senate suggests here. maybe that can be done but there's got to be limited set of goals, a considerable amount of independence for the agency that administers this to the health choice administration to figure out what works, to try different things, not to be by a board of directors made up of 435 representatives and senators. i suggest minimizing the policing role of you want to actually sell insurance, which is basically the mission of an exchange. nobody buys it if you haven't done anything. you are going to have to be somewhat less of a policeman and maybe that means regulating carriers more through state division
first years in office was marked by very polarized partisanship in washington. he wants to recapture the magic he had in the campaign. it was a remarkable moment in front of the cameras. the white house told the republican caucus that they wanted to keep the cameras in there for the session. that is unusual. use of their only there for the president's opening remarks. -- usually, they are only there for the president's opening remarks. >> what issues did the gop members pressed the president on? >> it is almost all domestic issues, particularly health care and the economy. the dialogue went basically with republicans pressing the president on why he did not listen to more of their ideas and why did he not knowledge they had ideas. he said i incorporated some of them into my ideas. i did not like the other ones. he was upset that they continue to care picture him as a radical. -- characterize him as a radical. we talked to some of these things that were divided. >> how do you describe the atmosphere of the event itself? >> it was civil. it was tense. it was almost wonky. there was non
those on wall street and as mr. poe has mentioned, that washington-wall street collusion, only think about the folks that are doing really well in the economy and forget about that working middle class, forget about advanced manufacturer manufacturing, forget about the next generation of farming and ag products and forestry, forget about the fact that 2/3 of job growth in this country comes from small and medium sized businesses. they may not get the same headlines as the goldman sachs but they employ america, they treat their workers well, they're accountable and they produce real value in our community. those are the folks we have to remember. those are the people that are taking it on the chin from getting nickeled and dimed by credit card companies and bank fees and utility rate increases and everything across the board. those working in middle class folkses need a voice and we need to be that voice. i will say this, i've given the president a little grief tonight and certainly his secretary of the treasury, mr. geithner, for not being the change that i expected to see and not do
lots of detailed questions about policy and the current in washington. before we get into the nuts and bolts i buy to let you talked to us about what you see your members business looking like ten years from now. >> guest: i actually am very optimistic about broadcasting the future, both in the radio site and in terms of high definition radio taking off. i don't know whether savio satellite radio will grow but i think people love their radios and is the ubiquitous part of being in america, having a radio and for the news entertainment, sports, politics, and emergency services. in terms of television, i think the digital transition has reawakened the future for tv broadcasting, with the digital television you get a better picture, you've got three be coming soon. and you will find what's called multicasting with stations now able to offer unique channels, perhaps children's channels, sports channels, whether channels, in addition to their traditional broadcast signal. this just means more opportunities for the public, if they want to get it the old-fashioned way they can get it for
here in washington. it's a new speak where transparency actually mean os paycheck and obscure. where the american people are being kept in the dark. where major policies are being proposed that's going to radically change how health care as well as every aspect of life in america is going to be done. it's not fair. the american people need to stand up and say no. they need to say no to this new speak. they need to say, mr. president, nancy pelosi, madam speaker, harry reid, mr. majority leader, we want openness. we want transparency. we want a new era of open government so that the american people can understand what's going on up here in washington. it's absolutely critical that the american people stand up and speak to the leadership and demand something different and that the american people demand that nothing is passed, particularly on health care, that's going to radically change the economic future of our country, it's going to radically change the way people live because anything and everything can be bought under the aegis of health care. i think very probably, we will see w
and politics in the coming year. this is from sunday's "washington journal". >> we want to look ahead for the next hour. rothenberg political report and charlie cook of the cook political report. thanks to you both for being with us. what are you looking at in 2010? guest: i think when you look at a national election you look and say what's the historical average. then you say what may deviate from that. we know from history in a first term midterm election the average result is the president's party losing about 16 seats in the house. breaking even in the senate and losing about five governorships. you look at the current situation and say, well we're in a recession and a situation where president's job approval rating is on the lower end of the scale. point of bv where ron reagan was at this point december of his first year in office but four points behind where bill clinton was. both of them lost a lot of seats. you're looking at - you know basically all the factors argue this should be as big or larger than for a normal midterm election except one thing the republican brand is no
leaders in washington, d.c., who implemented an extreme ideology, that ideology got implemented here in the united states congress, it was their ideology that was governing or not governing wall street, it was the lack of investment in jobs, education, health care, that needed to be made, and all of a sudden fast forward a few years, the ponzi scheme ends, the house of cards collapses and it's not just wall street that has problems, it ripples throughout the economy and now we have in some cities 15%, 20% unemployment. we have health care costs zooming out of control, energy costs zooming out of control. we continue to be dependent on foreign sources for our energy which is a national security issue, because these problems weren't addressed and the initiatives that we have put forth over the last year have begun to shift the trends at least away from losing hundreds of thousands of jobs a month to, you know, only losing 80,000, from 700,000 to 80,000, from the stock market ending up at 6,500 a year ago now up to over 10,000. up 55%. so, things aren't perfect, but they certainly are m
in washington d.c. within the beltway. and this will have far more impact on whatever is happening in afghanistan than probably what is happening in afghanistan itself. and because this war is fought on the field of exaggeration and hiss steeria and terms that actually hide the reality on the drowned in afghanistan. it is driven by naked political ambition. and that's rather than the national interests. and it lives to -- leads to strange bed folios as we see right now where the president has more support with the republicans than with his own party. and what is the surge going to do? well, the surge is going to increase opposition to the war as we have seen already. and -- and not only within this country but also within europe where of course our nato allies are delight there with us and of course, just like frank mentioned, that gives us limited time to do something. because with the surge, we're going to see an increased number of deaths, we going to see the images of body bags being thrown back. and that -- that -- the number of deaths, not just our words but the number of dea
week for the next few weeks to try to focus washington's attention? >> i think washington's attention is focused on jobs. i think washington's attention is focused on our security situation. jonathan, each day, washington has to be focused on many different things. i think you for the president say if there was just one problem to focus on maybe that would be nice, but that is not what he ever assumed would have been given the type of environment that we had coming into office. i doubt there will ever be a day we are only focusing on one issue. i think the president, each day that he is into this year, has worked on a multitude of issues ranging from getting our economy back in order, finishing of health care, working on the security situation and investigation that he spoke about yesterday's, afghanistan, i iriraq. i think there is no end to the issues he has been working on. >> [inaudible] >> i walked out of it without having read that. we will get so animation -- get some information. >> the matter involving the advertising billboards that have been resolved? >> it is my understand
-muslim flares that were distributed at george washington and a conservative group. >> guest: that is in a long string of hate crimes. i only listed a small small for-- portion of them in my book. after 20 years they think all these hate crimes usually on college campuses have turned out to be hoaxes. the only surprise about a news showing up on a college campus these days would be a racist. it is always somebody trying to bring attention to racism and anti-semitism sexes them whenever and what is thought to be you know a burgeoning clan movement at columbia university. then the entire nation, i don't know if you remember that there was a professor at columbia i guess about two years ago who was in the middle of the plagiarism investigation. and suddenly lo and behold finds a news on her door and for weeks the entire nation was fixated on this case, and if you had been following the hate crimes for the last 20 years your suspicions within the bin raised, your antenna would have gone up. i think they finally abandoned the investigation from the very beginning. the police were saying we did not c
